"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it." - C.S. Lewis

I've been tagged!

*Live In A Book Tag*

I've been tagged by Celebrilomiel (Celeb) over at Melody of the Miscellaneous!

Rules: Name eight books you'd like to live in for a week, and then tag eight people.

(in no particular order)

1.  Isle of Swords and Isle of Fire by Wayne Batson.  Pirate adventures rock.  I would totally love to be in that book.  Wielding swords and awesome pirate pistols and fighting off enemies!

2.  The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis.  I really want to see what Aslan's Country looks like and what the ending looks like! ...all right, fine, and include all the other Narnia books in this one too.  But especially this one.  I love Narnia!

3. The Slopes of War by N.A. Perez.  I'd never heard of it until last year when I read it for school, but it's REALLY good.  I'd want to live in it because I'd want to experience what the Civil War was like.

4.  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.  Yes, I picked this book.  *sigh*

5.  Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes.  One of my favorite favorite books ever since I was little.  I'd want to experience the Revolutionary War and perhaps meet Johnny - he's an interesting character.

6. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.  This book is just so classic and epic - I would have loved to travel along with the group, meet Gandalf and Bilbo and all the dwarves...*sighs* And the dragon would have been coolness.

7. Nothing to Fear by Jackie French Koller.  This book has a completely wonderful set of realistic characters that I would LOVE to meet, especially the MC, Danny.  It's set during the Great Depression, another time period it would be ultimately cool to see.

8.  Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.  It just piques the imagination - pirates and all that.  Totally cool, awesomely epic.  Just all-around a good yarn.  I'd love to see Long John Silver in person...and Jim...and all those people.  It would just be so cool.

Okay, now that I've done my duty, I will proceed to tag eight people.  =D
